Good evening folks
Over the weekend when I was busy making my last batch of Christmas cards I was also doing some colouring with my FlexMarkers and ProMarkers and this afternoon I have turned one of the images I coloured into a Christmas card.
This lovely image is called "The Singers" and is from the Moments in Time series by Flowersoft. I have previously used another of the Moments in Time stamps and loved colouring it so much that I just had to have another one. That stamp was called "Let is Snow" and the two cards I made with it can be found on my posts of 29 September and 21 August. Anyway, back to today's card and here it is:
The base card is a 200mm square pre-scored card blank. I have used Anitas gold foil paper, Stardream red paper and some patterned backing paper from a Hot Off The Press paper stack which was a freebie with a magazine I bought a couple of months ago. The image was coloured with a mixture of FlexMarkers and Promarkers on 250gsm Supersmooth white card from Samuel Taylors which I got at a craft fair recently. I thought it looked a little stark because the card is very white so went lightly over it with FlexMarker in watermelon. I then used a shaving brush to ink around the edges using Tim Holtz distress ink in peeled paint. The card was finished with a poinsetta and some card candi. I don't think the photograph actually does the card justice because it looks far more vibrant in reality.
I have decided to enter this card into the following challenges:
Just Inspirational Challenges
The Crafty Pad (Festive Cheer Inspiration - red, green and gold/silver)
Kaboodle Doodle Challenge (Baby it's cold outside)
